....it was thrown in as a bit of random wildcard name but now I just keep going back to it and think it could be the one. Or am I just being pregnant-crazy-with-names? Is it a bit much (e.g. a bit twee, too "och aye the noo")? We are both Scottish by the way (not that that should make a difference I guess) but the baby won't be born in Scotland. We live abroad so it would be very unusual where we live but not unpronouncable.

I know that some friends and family will think it's very wacky and "out there" (that shouldn't affect me I know, but...) (our DS1 has a very classic, normal name).

We have always loved Archie for a boy's name for years but my friend called her son that, so Hamish seems the best alternative.

The other boys' names we like are William or Murray.

What would a wee Hamish get for a nickname?
What do you think?

Hamish is a fab name.

Hamish is gorgeous! Not really any need to shorten it either - I know a few adult Hamishes and none of them have NNs. Hamie sounds alright, though. smile
